@achewood I am composing a tone poem about eagles, lawnmowers, and Ted Nugent. It is composed only of the sounds of those things.

Now, David Bowie and Queen, that would be a hard question, but I'd have to go with Queen.

Of course. Queen Trumps almost everyone.

Yardbirds, I think.  I know the Yardbirds better and they rock pretty hard.  Itchycoo Park is a pretty damn cool song though.

True, Itchycoo Park is pretty cool, as is Lazy Sunday. However, before they turned to psychedelic pop they were a muscular rock band capable of keeping up with The Who.

Small Faces or Yardbirds?

I'll say Zombies, but it's close.

Ditto!

I can't think of a single thing that seems similar to me about Springsteen and Neil Young.

You can't see that their point of view politically is very similar? Born in the USA is a protest song disguised as a pro America anthem. Rockin' in the Free World is exactly the same thing.

Sure, I don't love all of Bowie, but some of it is basically essential to civilization.

Well, now that you mention it, his highs are extraordinarily high.

if I never heard another note of Neil Young for the rest of eternity that would be just dandy.

That's a bit surprising to me given your love of Springsteen. Don't they both play that heartland/everyman shtick for all it's worth?

Bowie is awesome, but there are great swaths of his material that I just don't connect with. The price you pay for being so experimental, not all of it works for everybody.

Neil Young over David Bowie?? OMG. I thought you guys were my friends!

That's what makes this game so interesting. It's all about the tough choices.

How about -=- Neal Young or David Bowie?

I prefer Neil Young over just about anyone.

What Miles said.

The Davies bros are still astounding me.

The more I listen the more I discover. They're discography is deep and rich and I am still discovering gems. I just recently starting appreciating this simple masterpiece.

In the Lileks Memorial Minneapolis Beatdown category I propose Replacements vs. Husker Du.

I prefer The Replacements tunefulness, they are more melodic than Husker Du. I'm a McCartneyite from way back so melody is very important to me.

Big Audio Dynamite or Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros?

Gotta take a mulligan on this one. Not familiar with either one to make a judgement. What is your assessment?

Zeppelin vs The Who is a real poser.  Probably Zeppelin, but it'd be a real wrench to give up The Who.  Also, I don't think they are similar enough.  I would propose: The Who vs. The Kinks and Zeppelin vs. The Stones.

Once upon a time I would have agreed with you, but now... I'm in a weird place with Zeppelin. They were an awesome group, but I found myself not wanting to listen to them anymore. My love was rekindled when they put out that awesome live record about 15 years ago, but has since gone cold once again. Even at my peak Zep love it would have been close between them and The Who!

Who vs. The Kinks. My love for The Who hasn't diminished, but my love for The Kinks has only risen through the years. Still, it's The Who.
